KIMBALL, TN (AP) - A water product and services company is creating 325 jobs in Tennessee over the next five years.

The Department of Economic and Community Development on Wednesday announced the expansion of Mueller Water Products, Inc. in Kimball. The company makes products and offers services to transmit, distribute and measure water.

Mueller plans to set up manufacturing operations in an existing 233,000-square-foot (21,646-square-meter) facility in Marion County. The facility will allow Mueller to insource certain activities and further leverage its large casting foundry in Chattanooga.

Mueller CEO Scott Hall says the facility is planned for a 2020 opening.

The company’s products and services include engineered valves, fire hydrants, pipe connection and repair products, metering products, leak detection and pipe condition assessment.
